Smile Pic Request..JK w/2.5 lift kit

Guys and Gals,

I will be buying a new JK within the next month, currently I'm still trying to figure out which model to buy. After I buy it the first mod I'll make is going to be a lift kit.

After reading and looking at several pics of lifted JKs I think my best option is going to be a 2.5 lift. The only thing is that I'm not 100% sure.

If you could post some pics of JKs with a 2-2.5 in lift this would help me out a lot.

Thanks
Terrill

You're putting the cart before the horse. What size tires are you planning to get?

Then 2" is plenty and they would actually fit without a lift.
